More than 6,000 games released on Steam in 2017 so far

Almost ten years' worth of new games are already on the marketplace - and there's still a month to go

The flood of new games released on Steam continues, with the total number already far surpassing that of last year.

According to Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad, more than 6,000 titles have debuted on Valve's marketplace since the beginning of the year.

That's more than the 4,207 released in 2016, and almost as many titles as were release between Steam's launch in 2005 and 2015.

Ahmad released a graph via Twitter that shows an overview of the rise in new Steam games:
